Indeed, even on the Mornington Peninsula it was a rugged night! I woke up several times with the roar of the wind! But no damage in my area! Great shot!

Oh my, that's a lot of wind. We get a couple of storms like that each winter and spring and they can be quite frightening.

Always so sad to see trees that are broken, I just love trees.
